As a general rule, most clients are following the "If we gave them static
IPv4 addresses we will give them static IPv6 addresses" (infrastructure,
servers, etc).  The whole SLAAC(autoconfig) vs DHCPv6 is a separate (albeit
related) conversation ...

I'm still an IPv6 wussie and would like to learn more before moving forward,
so would anyone care to share info on experiences with this decision?

Seeing Howard's quick response saying "To try to stay operational about this..." makes me realize I may have inadvertently invited a religious flame fest.

Please!  Operational content and hands-on experiences only to the best of your ability.  I want to learn from this, not delete the whole thread.
